At Rebecca’s Tent, a fundraising goal means a great deal more than the amount of money collected from friends and supporters. It means funds for MARTA cards to enable women to travel back and forth to the shelter each day, to get to part-time or full-time jobs or job interviews.
It means having funds for special costs such as cab rides to the hospital for our guests with health emergencies or for stipends for ladies who must pay fees to join specific job training programs.
The money raised also allows us to offer all of our services free of charge to homeless women, so they can save the money they earn to pay for an apartment or room after they leave the shelter.
To put it simply, reaching our fundraising goal enables us to help women who need food, shelter, and human kindness. Your dollars give us the power to help those who most need it in our community.
